New Quay RNLI receives kind donation from Lampeter Evangelical Church

Lifeboats News Release

New Quay RNLI recently received a kind donation of £200 from Lampeter Evangelical Church from their Christmas card collection. They also gifted bibles in both Welsh and English to the volunteer crew.

Representatives of the church visited the lifeboat station and presented Roger Couch, New Quay RNLI’s Lifeboat Operations Manager, with the cheque and bibles.

The church elders said, “Instead of giving each other Christmas cards we put the money into a collection box and donate it to a local cause. We saw that New Quay Lifeboat Station would be getting a new lifeboat and decided to donate the money. We had a lovely evening at the lifeboat station and would welcome any of the crew to the Mustard Seed café at our church in Lampeter.”

Mr Couch added, “We wish to thank the congregation of Lampeter Evangelical Church for this kind donation and the gift of the New Testament bibles in both Welsh and English. It was very generous and thoughtful.

“The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea and every donation counts towards our lifesaving work. If you would like to donate to New Quay Lifeboat Station, please go to:”
